Division of Research and Strategic Innovation Awards

Nominations are now being accepted for the following awards:

Career Research Achievement:  Honors the contributions of a scholar to her/his field over the course of a career.  The basis of this award is the standing, which the faculty member enjoys, in his or her scholarly discipline.  Nominations should be accompanied by evidence that the nominees' work is recognized as distinguished and influential well beyond the UWF community.  Moreover, nominees should be at a stage in their career appropriate for an assessment of long-term contributions and influence.  Normally, only one of these awards will be made each year and this prize can be received once by any single individual.

Distinguished Achievement in Research:  Recognizes a single distinguished achievement in scholarship and research.  We do not wish to impose excessive limits on the kinds of achievements suitable for recognition. However, the types of achievement envisaged include the winning of a prestigious book prize, the receipt of distinguished awards from one's peers, or the receipt of a major center grant. It is expected that such achievements will be relatively recent, certainly within the last five years.  Junior, as well as senior faculty may be nominated for this award.  A maximum of one award per year will be made. If circumstances warrant, this award can be received more than once. 

Applications should be emailed to no later than 5:00 pm, Monday, February 13, 2017. For full details, please review the award information below.

Nominations made to either program remain active for three years (or two beyond the year in which the nomination is made) unless the individual is selected for an award in a given year.

Each recipient will receive a $2,000 cash prize and a plaque given out at Honors Convocation. The most valuable prize, however, will be the recognition of achievement awarded by colleagues.

Eligibility:  Only tenure-line faculty may be nominated for either award.

Nomination process:  Members of the faculty should submit their nominations for either award to the AVP for Research at

In addition, nominating officials/departments also should provide a letter of nomination, a current version of the candidate's vita, up to two additional letters from prominent scholars in the field of the candidate, and scholarly materials sufficient to allow evaluation of her/his merits. Nominators and supporting letters should explain the significance of awards or honors that the candidate has received. Occasionally more than one member in a department or unit is eligible and can be nominated. All of the internally produced material should be emailed to Hard copy materials such as books or journals can be submitted directly to the AVP for Research.  Supporting materials from other individuals or institutions also may be submitted to

Review process:  Recipients of both awards will be selected by a Faculty Research Awards Committee.  The Committee has the option of declining to make either or both of the awards in a given year if, in its judgment, no nomination is sufficiently compelling.

Award amount: $2,000 each + plaque given out at Honors Convocation
